Incidence and Trends of Infection with Pathogens Transmitted Commonly Through Food
From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR):
Foodborne disease continues to be an important problem in the United States. Most illnesses are preventable. To evaluate progress toward prevention, the Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network* (FoodNet) monitors the incidence of laboratory-confirmed infections caused by nine pathogens transmitted commonly through food in 10 U.S. sites, covering approximately 15% of the U.S. population. This report summarizes preliminary 2013 data and describes trends since 2006.
